When buying items on EBay, be careful how you type.
A typing mistake caused a user to bid $10,100 for a gold iPhone 5s earlier this week -- more than 50 times the item's regular price of $200 with a two-year contract -- and got the person worldwide attention.
But while the gadget is listed as sold on EBay, the item's seller said Friday that he has canceled the transaction at the request of the buyer, who apparently typed in one too many zeroes when bidding for the popular smartphone.
"It was a mistake," the item's seller told the Los Angeles Times.
While no iPhone is fetching that kind of bid, a number of gold iPhone 5s devices are selling on EBay and Craiglist for more than $1,000, several hundred dollars more than a no-contract cost of $650.
